I am excited about this collaboration: H&M gives me the opportunity to bring my vision of style and my celebration of beauty to a wider audience. The goal is to share my love for beauty and to be able to be a part of everyone's 'happy moments', to help create love stories all around the world. - Giambattista Valli

It's amazing how all these couture designers are coming up with lines that are affordable, and so everybody can also wear these grand pieces which are super iconic. And of course, it's always a privilege and an honor to be part of something this big, and to be flown out here in Rome to enjoy this event. It's always very exciting for us Filipinas to be part of something bigger. - Heart Evangelista
